6. Bonus features like pour guards and recipe books
7. Effective mixing action that reaches all areas of the bowl
8. A head that tilts back for easy bowl access

The annual 2012 Top 10 Best Stand Mixer awards list was topped by the Cuisinart SM-55 stand mixer winning the top quality spot and a 9.5 rating. The review noted several strengths of the mixer including an 800-watt motor and die cast metal and included the following exerpt, “A convenient aspect of this mixer is the countdown timer that runs for 15 minutes, giving you the freedom to move around the kitchen as it’s doing its work; it even shuts off automatically, so you don’t have to worry about leaving the room for a minute.”

The best value machine in the Stand Mixer Ratings and Reviews as rated by the authors was the Sunbeam FPSBSM2104 model mixer which editors noted is strong in many areas such as the following: “A well-designed stand mixer in red, black, white, or silver, this Sunbeam model boasts 350 watts of power and an effective triple-mixing action. While the two beaters rotate in opposite directions, the bowl simultaneously spins around its base, resulting in better scraping along the sides of the bowl.” Another Sunbeam also took the Best Budget stand mixer spot in the company's top 10 list.
